"Of all the things you said to me, this one reigns true, live life to the fullest and live it only for you."About me
Your sweet words triggering the chain reaction
That led me to this place
Of bliss full happiness
I can’t comprehend
When my heart’s racing a mile a minute
From the touch of your hand
Causing the butterflies in my stomach to dance
A terrifying and exhilarating feeling
It takes over me with each kiss you send my way
Teasing me with glimpses of happy days
Oh how I hope this never ends
Frozen in time my days I want to spend
So that your sweet words may never dwindle
My heart to you I will give in return
I am too precious
These pieces of mine are much too precious
They are highly valued and deeply coveted
Those beautiful pieces of mine
Long and far they search for them
Travelers from all time
Looking and hoping to find
A beautiful piece like mine
But I treasure these pieces
Those lovely one-of-kind pieces
The ones found at the bottom of my soul
I keep them locked away there
Deep in there
Locked away for none to see
Will you take them from me?
My precious pieces
The ones you look for
The kind you yearn for
I have many
Large and small ones
Round and flat ones
For you to take
Then again, I will keep my pieces
They are much too coveted
And highly wanted
So for now they will remain with me
But what am I if not these pieces?
These broken pieces
My heart in pieces
It’s whats left of me
It takes pain for me to write the words that make you read
It takes agony from within to string the syllables that bid my whim
I takes sorrow and despair to move the pen across the page
To create the illusion of happiness
It takes pain
To me you are like a book
A good book
I just can’t put you down
I sit in anticipation waiting for the next chapter
Reading you till the early dawn
Each adventure more exciting than the last
Keeping me at the edge of my seat
I long to flip through your pages until
My thirst for you is sated
Instead I savor every syllable written
Wishing your story to last
My tears you have caught between your binding
The ones I have not yet cried
A never ending book I want you to be
So that I may never have to read your words
Minor things we are
Why do we seem to be just minor things?
A sore to society but not enough to need a cure
Minor things they say
Born into this race its a minor thing
Living with out expectations a little thing
When dysfunctional becomes normal
It’s but a minor thing
If my heart isn’t broken why do you want to fix it?
If my tears aren’t of pain why do you insist on wiping them away?
If I have fought my battles and won the war why should I surrender?
If my world doesn’t revolve around you, why are you standing on center stage?
Why should I settle for being your Princess when I am already a Queen?
I didn’t lose my glass slipper I left it for a better pair.
I don’t need your pity, your lies or your pain, I’ve played that game once before and I won’t be playing again.
I won’t drown in my sorrows if I already know how to swim.
So don’t worry about me, I’ve already come a long way.
This race is far from over and I won’t settle for second place.
